YMMV / The Burrowers

Go To

  • Complete Monster: The psychopathic Henry Victor is a cruel, ignorant, sadistic cavalry officer who leads the hunt to find the missing Stewart family. When one native proves to be reluctant to talk, Victor has him horrifically tortured. At the end of the film, Victor returns to kill the only Ute Indians who know how to kill the monstrous Burrowers, hanging an innocent Native woman named Faith and unnecessarily amputating one man's leg, resulting in his own death to Victor's apathy. Victor ends the film having his men preparing to butcher the Ute tribe without a flicker of remorse, reflecting the evils of Manifest Destiny in one nasty package.

How well does it match the trope?
